About the acts
Jo Caulfield

Award-winning comedian Jo Caulfield hits the road with her first UK tour in five years.

Fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Jo is bringing her new tour show, Here Comes Trouble to a host of venues across the UK.

Here Comes Trouble is a solid 90 minutes of stand-up comedy where Jo gets her claws into everyone (and everything) that annoys her. From stories about the pitfalls of buying a new mattress, what happens when you gate-crash your husband’s “boys’ night out” and trying to recapture the magic in a long-term relationship, this is pure stand-up, delivered with nothing more than a microphone and a bad attitude.

“My tour show is made up of some of my favourite jokes from my last few Fringe shows and some brand-new material about what I’ve been up to since my last tour, so I think it’s going to be a lot of fun to get out there and tell these stories, and generally talk about everything that’s happened – and annoyed me – since I was last out on the road like this.”

General press-quotes about Jo…

“Sharp-witted urban comedy that goes down a treat… like a sociology textbook but with jokes” — The Times.

“Wonderfully sharp and bitchy … one of the finest female comics at work” — The Observer.

“Jo Caulfield is incapable of doing a bad show. She is quite simply a damn funny woman” — The Scotsman.

       

“Rock Solid, high quality stand-up… With occasional flashes of viciousness delighting the room” — British Comedy Guide.

What the reviewers said about “Here Comes Trouble” this Fringe…

“She is as always, an immaculate performer, a wonderful writer, and a consummate professional, delivering her hour of new material, packed out with gags and stories in her accustomed style, slightly caustic about some, bitingly sarcastic of others, but laugh out loud funny throughout… It is always a sign of a great show when the performer is winding up and you wonder where the hour went, I would have guessed we had only been in her company for twenty minutes or so and I was not alone with these thoughts I am certain.” (Five-star review) – One4Review

“The reaction of the sell-out audience served to reiterate that Caulfield remains one of the UK’s foremost stand-ups.  Her humour is highly engaging, whilst not shying away from controversy on occasion. Her significant comedic skill is reinforced in the show’s finale which brilliantly ties together the preceding, seemingly disparate, strands in a single narrative.  Here Comes Trouble is akin to spending a joyous evening with a pandemic-neglected friend.  Albeit one who constantly critiques nearly everything about you. To your face.” (Five-star review) – The Recs

“The laughs keep coming, thick and fast. She’s an expert; she knows exactly how to make her material fly: when to push the boundaries and when to rein things in. The topics are wide-ranging – from her mum’s favourite TV programmes to nationalising the railways; from irksome neighbours to European mini-breaks – and all skewered with her trademark caustic wit. Her onstage persona is blisteringly impatient.” (Five-star review) – Brickbats and Bouquets

What Fringe audiences said about  Jo Caulfield…

“Proper good laugh with proper good adult slight edgy stuff. Thoroughly enjoyed a break from the same' old same old. Confident and brilliantly delivered. Go see.” – Jennifer Bailey

“Show number 55 for me this fringe - and this was this best comedy so far. Laugh Out Loud material.” – Alan Batten

“Brilliant hour of fun from one of the best acts on the circuit today. If you haven’t checked out Jo yet, you really should... you won’t regret it.” - OspreyRef

“She's a seasoned comic performer, with a great gift for storytelling. Her material was interesting and not the usual, joke, joke, joke you get with many comics. She is very slick with her delivery and can work the crowd. I liked how she pulled all the disparate stories together at the end…” – David Howard

Jo was recently Champion of the Week on ‘Richard Osman’s House of Games’ - where she discovered she has a horribly competitive and completely ruthless streak.

Jo’s TV credits also include ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’, ‘Mock The Week’, ‘The John Bishop Show’, ‘Have I Got News For You’ and ‘The Royal Variety Show’.

Jo has written and starred in several of her own BBC Radio 4 series: ‘It’s That Jo Caulfield Again’, ‘Jo Caulfield Won’t Shut Up’ and her own Stand-Up special ‘Jo Caulfield Live’. She has also appeared as guest on many radio panel shows including Just A Minute, Breaking The News, The News Quiz and Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive.

A prolific comedy writer Jo worked for many years as a writer on ‘So Graham Norton’ on Channel 4. She has also written for Ruby Wax, Joan Rivers, Denise Van Outen and Ant & Dec.

2023 has been a busy year for Jo, as in addition to her Edinburgh Fringe run and the new tour, her debut book, The Funny Thing About Death (published by Birlinn Polygon) was published in August. This hilarious, but touching, memoir explores the lives of Jo and her sister ­– author and comedy writer, Annie Caulfield – from the two unconventional sisters 1970s childhood and their love of music, boys and breaking the rules, to Annie’s cancer diagnosis six years ago at the start of Jo’s last nationwide tour.

“I was just about to go on stage in, of all places, Oswaldtwistle, when I got the email from Annie telling me that she had cancer. Not the best way to start a tour, but me travelling round the country – and the stories that come from being on tour – turned out to be a welcome distraction for us both” says Jo.

The book began as a form of therapy for Jo, “I started out writing a few articles to help me get my head around Annie’s death, they sort of evolved into a few spoken word performances at a couple of events, and then once lockdown meant I was stuck at home instead of out gigging, I started to put those articles and scripts together and they gradually turned into the book. It took a couple of years – and several drafts – to get to the finished version; I’d always assumed writers were being dramatic when they said it took years to write a book, but it’s hard work!” says Jo.

All of Jo’s profits from The Funny Thing About Death will be donated to MacMillan Cancer Support – a charity which Jo has already raised over £50,000 for through bucket collections at the end of her Fringe shows since 2017. There will be a chance to buy a copy of the book at the end of each tour show.
